For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
then again set it in 1-2 its original position.
Then it not want password.

There is a well know issue with Toshiba laptops of certain models, where at startup suddenly ask for a password.
There is NO WAY you can reset that.
You must take it to the nearest Toshiba authorized service center.
There will be no charge for it.
You should first call them to get an authorization number.
Their number is 1(800)457-7777
Just tell them that your laptop is asking for a password at boot up, and give them your model number.

They will also flash the CMOS so this issue won't repeat again.

Only way to remove the password without knowing it is to take out the cmos battery for a few minutes (aswell as any other power source.) the laptop most likely needs to be taken apart to do this.

I have a toshiba A215-S7437 and i get the error message read disk error when trying to boot up


A disk error is a fatal error on the hard drive, SMART monitoring will show you this in the BIOS, restoring to factory settings will not cure it.
You need to get a new hard disk and reinstall your OS

My toshiba laptop is asking for a password it will not boot without it as soon as you turn it on it wants a password


BIOS is set to password on....
did anyone make changes to ur laptop....
if so then only he can unlock it....as BIOS passwords cannot be unlocked....they are embeded in the BIOS microchip...
only a BIOS update can undo it...and that's very RISKY...

Toshiba a215-s7437 bios password what is it?


from release it doesn't have a bios password, the shop who slod the laptop to you must have put the password in, or maybe someone you know put it in. the only way you are going to get around this is to ether give the password from who put it in or take it to a IT shop and have them remove the bios battary overnight and then put it in again. that will remove all password settings and change all bios settings back to default settings
